A delightful, stone-built detached house located on the edge of open fields in Middleton-in-Teesdale, in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Conveniently situated on the road into the village, the property has been beautifully refurbished with an unusual upside down design, brimming with character.
Finished to a high standard, it combines contemporary styling, furnishings and fittings with a subtle blend of period features introduced during its conversion.
The open plan living area is a delight with a myriad of A frame beams running the full length of the room, along with exposed stonework, shuttered windows, a beautiful oak floor with cosy underfloor heating and a feature fireplace with woodburner.
French doors from the separate snug lead out to a magnificent decked area with furniture where you can settle with a hearty breakfast and take in the sights and sounds of the surrounding countryside before heading out for an adventure.
The kitchen follows the cottage’s country charm theme with a centre island and fabulous tiled floor.
The first floor also has a twin bedroom and a cloakroom whilst the ground floor consists of three bedrooms, one with a luxury en-suite, along with a family bathroom and a door leading to an enclosed courtyard.
The surrounding meadowlands provide great walking opportunities, with nearby woodland paths providing the chance to enjoy much of the local wildlife.
Middleton-in-Teesdale offers many local pubs, tea rooms and restaurants, whilst the nearby market town of Barnard Castle, with its cobbled streets and quaint lanes, attracts visitors all year round.
Slightly further afield, the Northern Dales are waiting to be discovered and visits to medieval Raby Castle with its deer park, Bowes Museum, High Force Waterfall and Egglestone Hall Gardens are not to be missed.
A superb retreat to return to after days spent exploring.
